Is It Any Good?

The Face, which is executive produced by Naomi Campbell, offers lots of insight into what it takes to be successful in the modeling industry. However, the show's real drama comes from by pitting well-known supermodels against each other, which is underscored by Campbell's catty behavior towards her fellow coaches, and her tendency to be hypercritical of her team.

Teens interested in fashion and in modeling will probably gravitate towards the show. Reality fans will find it entertaining enough, too. But like most modeling-oriented TV, the series features lots of unrealistic images of young women, a lack of focus on substantial achievements or character, and designer clothing and accessories that most people can't afford.
